Just snagged this single at Whole Foods while I was grabbing my sandwich. Nothing too exciting here, but it must be healthy because itís organic.

"was looking forward to this one during a big porter phase, but itís pretty weak. i know porters arenít stouts, but iíll get a newcastle if i want something THAT mild. 2012 - a little more robust and chocolatier. Still pretty average"

Aquilo (556) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUL 26, 2014
This was the only six-pack of porter that my local Whole Foods stocks right now, and it was on sale. So I took a chance. I should have known better. This is dark amber color, when it should be black. Aroma is rotting leaves and skunk. Flavor is sweet, only a little bit bitter. Overall, this beer is barely drinkable.

A solid if unexceptional and somewhat lightweight porter. Chocolate, raisins, a touch of licorice.

degbert (1197) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours red-brown with a fine-grained, smooth, cinnamon-colored head. Nose is a very light and faint coffee, maple, brown sugar, and cocoa mix. Decent enough on the tongue, with coffee and turbinado sugar notes, but very light -- easy drinking porter, good for summer or for something easy. It doesnít claim to be otherwise, so thatís OK. Finish has some whisky elements. Decently drinkable, and a nice change from motor oil impy porters.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Poura a deep clear red. Head fades to a film ring around the edge. Nose is mild chocolate, toffee, caramels, light nuts, toast. Flavor is light butter chocolate, nuts, good toffee flavor. Finishes dry and light on the palate. Good flavors but light and is lacking substance.

Very light, thin head. An very light, roasty aroma filled with malt and chocolate. Raisin flavors with light hints of coffee and chocolate. Not bad beer.
